The UJ-BCURE programme was a collaboration led by the University of Johannesburg, directed by Prof Ruth Stewart. It was designed and delivered in partnership with the governments of Malawi and South Africa, alongside a consortium of Malawian and South African delivery partners, with support from international organisations including the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) and the EPPI-Centre (UCL). It was embedded within, and has built upon, the work of the Africa Evidence Network (AEN).
